Mae Ping National Park is an immense verdant area encompassing Chiang Mai, Lamphun and Tak provinces. There are a lot of features inside this park such as caves, waterfalls, grassland, river routes and viewpoints. Popular attractions in the park are: Kaeng Koh, a serene lake with floating raft houses; Yang Wee Cave, a limestone cave composed of stalactites and stalagmites; Thung Kik, a grassy area in the east of the park is home to deers, rabbits and jungle fowl. The park is famous for Koh Luang Waterfalls, where water cascades down 7 tiers of limestone rock.
Located 20km away from the national park centre, the undisturbed Koh Luang Waterfalls stuns nature lovers with its serene greenish-blue water and myriads of fish. In summer (mid-February to May) the water is turquoise, but when it’s colder (November to February) it turns cerulean. During the rainy season, though, it’s cloudy green and visitors may not be allowed to take a dip for safety reasons.
This vast park has a number of attractive small camping areas, with some around the lake. At night, park rangers will come and light a fire for you. There are also kayaks and floating houses for rent, and you can enjoy dinner at the floating restaurant.
